Item 4.02 Non-Reliance on Previously Issued Financial Statements or Related Audit Report or Completed Interim Report.

 

On March 25, 2022, the audit committee of the board of directors (the “Audit Committee”) of Camber Energy, Inc. (the “Company”), after discussion with the staff of the Securities and Exchange Commission, Company management and the Company’s accounting and legal advisors, concluded that between August 2016 and April 2021 any sales of the Company’s Series C Convertible Preferred Stock (“Preferred Stock”) should not only have been classified in the Company’s financial statements outside of “permanent equity”, as stated in a previously filed Form 8-K filed on September 16, 2021, but should also have included a “derivative liability” based on a seven-year dividend commitment associated with the Preferred Stock . In April 2021 corrections and/or amendments to the Certificate of Designation (“COD”) of the Preferred Stock were executed by the Company and the holders of the Preferred Stock to remove terms that supported classification outside of permanent equity and added terms to support a classification as permanent equity. The specifics of such corrections and/or amendments were set out in the Current Report on Form 8-K filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on or about April 21, 2021.

 

As a result, the Company’s financial statements for the periods between the fiscal year ending March 31, 2017, through the quarter ending September 30, 2020 (the “Impacted Periods”) should no longer be relied upon. Similarly, any previously furnished or filed reports, related earnings releases, investor presentations or similar communications of the Company describing the Company’s financial results for the Impacted Filings should no longer be relied upon.

 

Additionally, on March 25, 2022, the Audit Committee also determined that the unaudited financial statements included in the Company’s Current Report on Form 8-K/A filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on October 6, 2021, which disclosed information regarding the acquisition of common stock of Viking Energy Group, Inc. (“Viking”) on December 23, 2020 (the “Acquisition”), should no longer be relied upon since the Audit Committee has determined that the Company should account for the investment using the equity method of accounting instead of using the acquisition accounting method.

 

The Company intends to file an amended Annual Report on Form 10-K/A with restated financial statements for the years ended March 31, 2019 and March 31, 2020, and to file amended Quarterly Reports on Form 10-Q/A with restated financial statements for the quarterly periods ended June 30, 2020, and September 30, 2020, in each case to reflect the appropriate accounting of the Preferred Stock outside of permanent equity and a derivative liability based on a seven-year dividend associated with the Preferred Stock.

 

The Company’s management and the Audit Committee have discussed the matters disclosed in this Item 4.02 with the Company’s independent registered public accounting firm, Turner, Stone & Company L.L.P.
